Princess Beatrice and husband Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi's first child will definitely receive a royal title when they're born — but not as a member of the British royal family.
Instead, the baby's title is being passed down from Edoardo, who is an Italian count.
This means that the pair's children will be honored with the title of count or nobile donna, depending on their gender.
Beatrice's father-in-law, Count Allessandro Mapelli Mozzi, cleared up the situation to the Daily Mail.
"Edoardo is the only male descendent taking the family into the next generation," he explained. "He is a count, his wife will be a countess automatically and any of their children will be counts or nobile donna."
On the other hand, her sister Princess Eugenie and Jack Brooksbank's 3-month-old son, August, doesn't have a title since his father doesn't have one either.
The pair, who wed last July, shared their happy news via a Buckingham Palace statement.
"Her Royal Highness Princess Beatrice and Mr Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi are very pleased to announce that they are expecting a baby in autumn of this year," the announcement read. "The Queen has been informed and both families are delighted with the news."
Though Beatrice is still months away from giving birth, the U.K. has already started guessing at what she'll name the baby.
According to MyBettingsites, the public's top pick is for the couple to name a baby boy Philip, after her late grandfather, with the odds at 8/1. For a girl, people are betting on Sarah — the name of Beatrice's mom — at 8/1.
"Beatrice and Edo’s pregnancy announcement is the fantastic news that royal fans have been desperate to hear ever since the couple’s wedding," a spokesman for the website shared. "The latest betting suggests the baby will be born in October 2021 and if the odds are anything to go by, royal fans are convinced the couple is set to welcome a little baby boy."
"Beatrice and younger sister Eugenie have on numerous occasions spoken about having children at a similar time, to ensure their babies have a close bond," the message continued. "Similar to what the two sisters have with each other."
